The trail is maintained great. I would not say this is an easy trail though. It is fairly steep. The view is nice but would be much better if the tower was unlocked.

Park at Green Knob Overlook at milepost 350.4 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Trailhead is north about 100 yards on the opposite side of the road.

The trail itself is excellently maintained by NC high peaks and recently re-done. The forest itself is OK, but the main goal, the fire tower, is locked so the view is very limited. The tower looks new and in very good shape. I have no idea why it is locked. It is a pity.
